Cupcake Case

Cupcake Case, 16"x20", acrylic color study

This painting is part of my exploration of abstract styles, techniques and the contrast of color saturations. I was inspired to do this painting by the colors and style of southwest artist Ted deGracia after visiting his studio, Gallery in the Sun in Tucson, AZ. 

I selected the rows of cupcakes because they recalled the rows of people crowded into a grandstand in a deGracia painting.

To achieve the extra loose and abstract but still representational look, I taped my brush to a long stick and used this to paint.
